's a little thing to think about that. if you could get everybody in america to pay you one penny a day. at the end of the year you'd have $1.1 billion. if you can get a dime you're going to have $11 billion at the end of the year. if you can get a dollar you can have over $100 billion. >> reporter: this is finally how we're going to be able to support the "newshour," we'll get each of you to send a penny and... >> but that's the trick, you've got figure out how to get everybody to give you that penny and the best way to do it is if you're already billing them, you find ways to stick in all these extra little charges. >> reporter: it didn't always used to be this way. here, for example is a scranton, pennsylvania electric bill from 1937, back when public utilities were strictly regulated. >> it's a very simple bill, it's not even a full page of paper, and it has the account number, the dates that are covered, the meter reading, this person used three kilowatts per hour of electricity, and the price written down here at the bottom. >> reporter: today's bill, by contrast-- this one from p

was about having a balanced plan that addressed america's fiscal challenges. acknowledged there were serious fiscal challenges that we do need long-term, deficit reduction. that's important for america's credibility, and it's important for america's economy and economic growth. that plan has to be balanced and that means significant revenues, and it has to go around. typically that means the wealthy and well off have to pay their fair share as well. again, these are not new issues. they are ones that were debated. they came up in every debate. even foreign policy debate. and so we think that the american people are on the side of the president and democrats. that is not to say -- [inaudible] we want to remind everyone that there's already been a trillion dollars, over a trillion dollars in spending cuts. and so that is a significant part of this debate, because it happened last year. but just because washington has a short memory doesn't mean we all should have one. and that there's already been sacrifice on behalf of through those discretionary cuts. we are particularly excited doing a lot

of costs which are going to escalate in the near future and bankrupt america because we can't afford spending on the elderly, on social security and medicare. well, i think if you're a oceanographer or even a mere surfer, none of these -- and this comes from "the washington post" -- none of these actually look like tidal waves. i know it's kind of small, it goes out to 2040. if you just look at the top two, health care spending, public health care spending, medicare and medicaid and social security, the second chart, if you look at social security, as monique said earlier, it goes from a little less than 5% now to about 6% by the middle of the 21st century. that's not exactly a tsunami that threatens to destroy our civilization and calls for immediate, urgent action. what it means is simply over half a century we need to either raise revenues by about 1.5% of gdp, or alternative if you want you could cut social security's benefits by that amount, or you could have some compromise. or you could think about reform within the context of the retirement system as a whole, and arguably as
as the insulting term they use is america's mercenaries, because we paid for the -- a lot of the military hardware and transportation and logistics and extra pay the thai troops received. they also tend to focus on those thais who are engaged in black market schemes. the truth behind it all is that thai soldiers were fighting, were dying, for four years thailand was sort of carrying out the war, what they saw at their war, in south vietnam. so, the casualties are something we should keep in mind. >> host: professor ruth, when did thai relations start to gel? thailand has been an ally for a longtime and participated in the iraq war and world war ii. >> guest: yaw can date back to the example of offering abraham lincoln war elephant for his troubles. the american civil war, but definitely in the 20th 20th century, thais were always close u.s. allies, and this is intensified -- disrupted partly during the second world war, but as soon as the cold war gels, thailand pretty much comes in along as a strong u.s. ally, and definitely a strong cold war ally in terms of being an anticommunist component to t

in afghanistan, ms. freeman said, i just sat here reliving the pain and wondering , where is america's outrage? where is america's concern that we're still at war? and mr. speaker, i made reference to this yesterday. the october 14 "new york times" editorial, and the title, "time to pack up," the subtitle, "it should not take two more years for the united states to leave afghanistan." it should not take two more years for the united states to leave afghanistan. since i strongly agree with that statement, i have started an online petition to start bringing our troops home in the summer or fall of 2013. the petition can be signed. it's jones.house.gov. and mr. speaker, i'm pleased to tell you in just three weeks, we have over 2,000 americans have signed this petition. our goal is to reach as many people as possible to put the pressure on our leadership to stop the loss of life and tragedy in afghanistan. congress, let's get together and work on legislation to bring our troops home before the current timeline of december of 2014. mr. speaker, before i close, this is one of the many posters that i

the pain and wondering, where is america's outrage? where's america's concern that we're still at war? my question is, mr. speaker, why is the house of representatives still supporting a war that costs $10 billion a month? this money is borrowed primarily from the chinese. all we hear about is this financial cliff, this crisis that's facing america. my question is after 11 years, where's the outrage from congress for our men and women in uniform dying in afghanistan? 2014 is the date that the president has said we will start bringing the troops out. that is 25 more months. why do we have to wait until the end of 2014 to start bringing our troops home? how many more have to die at the hands of the very afghans they're training? october 14 "new york times" editorial titled "time to pack up," has a subtitle that says it best -- "it should not take two more years for the united states to leave afghanistan." mr. speaker, i have a petition on my website, the website is jones.house..gov. i'm asking people around this country to please sign this petition with the name and state, nothing else, who

start with a portrait of america, and i call it a portrait to make it really clear from the very start that i have absolutely no aesthetic sense whatsoever. [laughter] but this is a sort of a portrait. i've taken the 3,000 odd counties in this country, and i've split them into ten. each dot represents roughly 300 counties on the basis of their density levels. because at their heart cities are the absence of physical space between people. cities are proximity, density, closeness. the bottom line shows the relationship between density and income. as you can see, there's a steadily increasing relationship there where the densest tenth of america's counties earn on average on a per capita basis 50% more than the people living in the least dense half of america's counties. this is a common phenomenon in the united states and throughout the world. the three largest metropolitan areas in this country produce 18% of our nation's gdp, almost a fifth, while including only 13 percent of america's population. the top line shows something that may be something more surprising. it's the relationship
